To apply for a Prime Location Public Housing (PLH) flat elsewhere with rehousing benefits, you need to meet the prevailing eligibility conditions for the purchase of a BTO flat.
We set aside up to 10% of the flats offered in BTO or SBF exercises for priority allocation under the Resettlement, Relocation, SERS, and Tenants' Priority Scheme, for eligible households. This does not include flats launched under the Prime Location Public Housing model or under open booking. Under this priority scheme:
If you have been shortlisted to book a flat under a BTO or SBF exercise, or booked a flat under the open booking, and then decide not to carry on with your public sales application, we will place you at the back of the selection queue for a new flat at the designated replacement site.

To give you more time to find out the SERS rehousing benefits before deciding to sell or transfer your flat with the SERS rehousing benefits, there will be a one-month freeze on the resale or transfer of your flat. You may grant the Option to Purchase for resale and submit the resale application; or submit your transfer application thereafter. You are not allowed to sell your SERS flat if you have previously enjoyed SERS rehousing benefits.

You (including spouse, occupiers and existing private property owners) can only buy or acquire an interest in a private property after you have met the minimum occupation period of the replacement flat. Otherwise, you may not be able to buy or keep the replacement flat.

Rehousing benefits are based on the status of the households. The benefits may include a SERS grant, concessions on resale levy or premium, and type of flat eligible for.
We will pay you the compensation based on the market value of your flat as at the time of SERS announcement, and some reasonable expenses to help you move.
